We would like to suggest websites worthy of interest and which are linked with the ICT Profile. The organizations behind those sites offer resources, tools and services to colleges. The resources from these organizations were judged pertinent for the ICT Profile and were catalogued, filed per category and associated, as the case may be, with skills from the ICT Profile. To find out how to access them from this web space, see the “Structure and Contents of the ICT Profile Space” section.
Resources for Students and for Teachers
Many resources that support students’ autonomy in the development of skills related to the ICT Profile are available. Teachers and their collaborators can also access them to polish their own skills. These resources were created specifically to answer the needs felt in college programs, and to make it easier to learn with available technology.
